SummaryJoin Nancy Rawles to explore when, where, and whether to include strong feelings in your work.
DescriptionWords that evoke feelings make a strong impression on readers and listeners. A writer’s own feelings or the feelings of a character, simply stated, can produce an intimate connection with an audience. Some writers use little internal description, inviting readers to react to a text that seems deceptively devoid of feeling. Others reveal an intensity of feeling through actions that stir and stun. This workshop will help you decide when, where and whether to include feelings in your work. A brief bearing of the heart can make all the difference.

Nancy Rawles is the author of several books and plays. Her novel My Jim was the Seattle Public Library’s “Seattle Reads” selection for 2009.
Class NotesLibrary events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required for this writing class, but seating is limited. Seating will be on a first come, first seated basis. Doors to the meeting room will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the class. We’ll try our best to make room for all interested writers, but students may be turned away if the room is filled to capacity. Due to the fire code, we cannot exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.
